Free textbook publisher OpenStax College has added a sixth title to its growing catalog, which has already saved students more than $5 million. The Rice University-based nonprofit today launched Introductory Statistics, a revised and updated version of the free textbook that first authenticated its core open educational publishing methodology. Introductory Statistics, which is available for download today, is a new version of the free textbook Collaborative Statistics. The latter was released as a free online textbook in 2008 via Connexions, the parent organization of OpenStax College. Introductory Statistics is also the first OpenStax College title to debut with a full suite of ancillary learning materials — including online homework, quizzes and tests — from a third-party partner.
